Summary
Presents the story of scientists studying Weddell seals in Antarctica, focusing on one seal, Patches, an unusual long-living seal who has survived the harsh environment and given birth to twenty-one seal pups
Summary
Scientists Roxanne Beltran and Patrick Robinson set off on a polar adventure, traveling to Antarctica to study the lives of Weddell seals. By finding Patches, a wily seal they've been tracking since birth, they'll be able to learn a lot about how much the seals get to eat and how many pups they raise. A Seal Named Patches takes young readers to the very bottom of the globe, where they meet the animals that live in cold, icy conditions. Through photos and real-life stories, young readers will learn about how scientists do fieldwork, the challenges of researching animals in harsh climates, what it's like to fly in a helicopter over Antarctica
